Aldi Supermarkets

Framework Agreement with Aldi Stores Ltd to provide engineering services for new or extended stores throughout North East England and Scotland.

The framework also includes mixed use schemes such as retail units attached to Aldi Stores, a Travelodge Hotel above the Aldi Store in Middlesbrough, and stores with industrial/work units alongside.  This has seen 3e work on many extensions and new builds per year since 2006 throughout a region stretching from the Northern Scotland down to North Derbyshire. 

Aldi, Wath upon Dearne

3e provided geotechnical, civil and structural services for the single storey steel framed structure consisting of 23m clear span sales floor, warehouse and 3 attached retail units.

The elevations consist of rendered masonry, glazing and a ‘wrap around’ entrance and trolley bay canopy.   

Arnison Centre

Refurbishment of an out of town retail park in Durham. Works included the provision of new retail units for Next, New Look and River Island.

The existing south terrace units were refurbished to include new façade cladding, signage support frames and cantilevered glazed canopies. Remodelling of the existing car park was also undertaken.

Car showrooms

3e has worked on a number of car dealership schemes, including Renault dealerships at Kidlington and Guilford and Mercedes Benz and Audi Dealerships at Trident Business Park in Huddersfield.

Additionally, 3e acted as civil and structural engineers for the alterations and extension to Dagenham Motors in Hays.

McDonalds Restaurants

3e previously worked with the leading fast food chain, McDonalds.

Manufacturing and installing drive-thru restaurants throughout the UK, our client Britspace installed over 400 restaurants in total.

A perfect example of how offsite construction enables earlier occupancy and therefore a faster return on revenue was demonstrated for McDonalds, by installing a fully operational restaurant in just 1 day. From arriving on site, the restaurant opened its doors to the first customers just 24hours later.

Building comprises cold formed steel joists and studs.


15,000sq ft 'Meet and Eat' development of double storey height retail units with provision for future internal mezzanine.  Steel framed structure with piled foundations and floor slab.


3e offers a wealth of experience in retail projects ranging from new build shopping complexes to niche fit-out schemes.

We understand the dynamics of retail and mixed use settings and work with the team to ensure the structure and surrounding spaces enhance the shopping experience.

Springfields Outlet Shopping

3e were involved in the conceptual design, development and subsequent expansion of the Springfields Outlet Shopping and Festival Gardens venue in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

The extensions were completed in 2008 and involved alterations to form an eastern mall access to ten new single storey steel-framed retail units, with a two storey timber-framed 43 bedroom Travelodge hotel above.
